Bravo Waukegan

Empowering Children Through Music

One Note at a Time

What We Do

Research confirms that a musical education improves academic success- it literally changes the brain, by enhancing cognitive development. And we know that students who learn music show persistence, motivation, concentration and have the ability to work successfully alone and as a part of a group.

Bravo Waukegan actively supports students of Waukegan public schools by partnering with the fine arts administration to fund opportunities to grow through music. Bravo provides resources for supervised, creative programs that take place in-school, after-school and during the summer.
